In February 2016 Melissa Marie Green got a tattoo on her stomach which says “Prima Donna” in huge script letters. In Italian “Prima donna” translates literally to “first lady” and describes an opera singer in a a leading role. The term has been co-opted into English to describe someone with a diva-like attitude who is arrogant and vain. Though some might see this an insult Melissa likes to act like a queen bee. As one half of the pop duo Millionaires, Melissa often sings about being better than everyone else and being high-maintenance.

Melissa Marie Green has gotten small tattoos with past boyfriends, but she went big after she got married. She has her husband’s name “Gavin” tattooed on the inside of her left arm, and she tattooed her own name on his chest to match. After completing a full sleeve on her right arm this is the first tattoo that she has gotten on the left.

Melissa decided to keep much of her relationship with Gavin private, waiting to announce their engagement until after they were already married. She explained “My life has been on blast ever since I can remember. This one was for us.” The pair were married in March 2016 and Melissa got the tattoo a few months after in June. She can no longer hide their commitment after getting this tattoo, but it doesn’t seem like she wants to. Since their “coming out” she’s posted lots of heartfelt and gushing messages about him on her social media profiles, like this one:

“I’ll never settle down…that’s what I’ve always thought. I was that kind of girl. Just ask anyone.” Everyone always says that someone “ties you down” – I mean, sometimes I won’t complain about that ;) – but my husband is the one man that has always supported me in anything and everything I want & ask for in life. I don’t know how I got so lucky to have someone so loving & understanding & trusting. I want to be honest – I’ve made some horrible mistakes in the past & abused his trust & it wasn’t worth it one bit. I didn’t believe that someone could really love me for ME. Even now, it’s about to be 6 months of being married & we realized we won’t be able to spend it together because of my career. I know that probably sounds cheesy but I don’t think people realize how appreciative they should be to get the chance to spend those stupid little dates & momentous occasions with the people they love. I cherish every second I get to spend with Gavin ❤️ Right now we’re 8 hours in time difference but when you read this baby just know I’m thinking about you & I can’t wait to see you soon. I love you.

Melissa Marie Green shows her love for her father with this “Daddy” tattoo on the back of her right hand. Artist Mikey Tedesco used the American traditional style technique and color palette for the design, which features a red heart with a banner and two yellow flowers with black leaves. This is the first large piece on Melissa’s hands, added in April 2015, and it is connected to her existing full sleeve with dots and stars.

Melissa added the first large piece to sleeve in August 2013, though she didn’t have it colored until much later. It’s a queen of hearts playing card with a rose at the bottom, outlined by Jesse Mora. She writes: “started outlining my sleeve. my take on “all hail the heartbreaker.” so many meanings behind this tattoo, you have no idea. I love it. thanks @tat2jesse.”

Artist Mikey Tedesco took over the coloring of the tattoo, beginning with the rose at the bottom in January 2014. He redid the black outline making it thicker and colored in the rose with red ink, using blue and yellow on the underside of the petals for contrast. He writes “Did not start this piece but redoing it all started with the rose :)” He completed the coloring of the queen of hearts at a separate session in February 2014.

Melissa Marie Green has the saying “I do what I want” tattooed on her left thigh. It describes her philosophy on life and is also a reference to the Millionaires lyrics “I do what I want, middle finger in the air, gonna party party party like a millionaire” from the song “Party Like A Millionaire.” She did the tattoo on herself in July 2013.

Melissa Marie Green’s first tattoo was “I ♥ $” (I Love Money) on the inside of her lip. She got this tattoo in the summer of 2009 while Millionaires were on Warped Tour. Because lip tattoos wear off easily, Melissa had this tattoo retouched in January 2011 while her sister Allison Green was getting her first tattoo, also in her lip.

  1. No offense to them but those are some butt ugly tattoos. Boss?? seriously .. it seems so pretentious. Don’t get me wrong though. I don’t judge any of them. I just don’t like the tattoos they decided to get. I mean imagine being 60 with “Bo$$” tattooed on you. LOL
